To understand Layer 2, you should know what Layer 1 is first. Layer 1 is the base layer of the blockchain, also referred to as Ethereum mainnet. It often suffers from network congestion which causes high transaction fees and long delays. Layer 2 refers to a set of protocols created to solve this problem, operating on top of the blockchain, but importantly still part of that base network. Layer 2 provides faster speeds and lower transaction fees than the blockchain itself offers, while maintaining the security and trust of the Ethereum mainnet. Please read more here.
When you first create your wallet, it will immediately be able to transact on the Ethereum mainnet (Layer 1). In order to utilize the faster speed and lower fees of Layer 2, you'll need to activate your Layer 2 account, which you can do by depositing ETH to your Layer 2 balance.
Swapping is a process that allows you to exchange one asset for another asset. The process works by using a third party Decentralized Exchange (DEX) to complete the conversion between cryptocurrencies, with the swap rate being determined by market conditions at the moment. Please read more here.
